Greenwine lost his mom this past Tuesday at age 93. Presumed coronavirus even though she wasn't tested, but her roommate in the nursing home did test positive. Very private funeral for no more than 10 people and shiva by way of Zoom.
As with the reported number of cases of confirmed coronavirus, the number of deaths from coronavirus is also underreported. No doubt, there are many seniors dying before they make it to the hospital, let alone get tested.
The stats in my main hospital mirror that of the NY metro area in general. Number of patients admitted with COVID and number of patients on vents is slowly decreasing, but deaths continue to pile up. I'm seeing a lot of patients with severe pneumonia in the 40-65 year old range, otherwise healthy, and the youngest intubated (on ventilator) pateint ive seen is 19. Believe me, everyone is vulnerable.
